The Lake Tahoe resort made the announcement on Tuesday and will offer a special pass holders day before opening to the general public, running lifts from 10 am to 4 pm, including Madden chair, Old Homewood Express and Happy Platter.
“Kicking off the winter season is without question our favorite time of year. On behalf of our entire team at Homewood, we can’t wait to welcome skiers and riders back to the only place in Tahoe where the mountains meet the lake,” said Kevin Mitchell, general manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “We are excited to offer our season passholders exclusive access to the mountain a day before the public, as a thank you for being part of the Homewood family this year.”
With 4 feet of natural snow combined with the resorts snowmaking abilities, the resort intends to open four lifts that provide access to over a dozen trails featuring beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain from the top of the mountain.
The resort is opening a full week earlier than scheduled due to the recent storms that have provided enough of a snowpack to get the lifts moving. Friday will feature top-to-bottom skiing and riding including the Madden chair, Old Homewood Express, Happy Platter and the North Carpet. Refreshments will be available at the North Lodge, Euro Snack and Big Blue View Bar, as well as retail, equipment rental and Ski and Snowboard School instruction.
